The Lord of the Rings Films and The One Ring
After beginning work on the franchise in 1997, Peter Jackson's film interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" series finally came to fruition with the release of the first film in 2001. "The Fellowship of the Ring" established the cast of Middle Earth and the great threat they faced from the land of Mordor and the Dark Lord Sauron. The film was a huge success with over $897 million made at the box office. Audiences were wowed by the gorgeous lands of Middle Earth, fantasy creatures and endearing characters striving to overcome the obstacles they faced. Two other films would be released, "The Two Towers" and "The Return of the King," which pushed the boundaries of special effects with the creation of enormous warring armies. "The Lord of the Rings" films are highly acclaimed as loving tributes to the source material and an entertaining adventure for the viewer.
The One Ring was crafted in the smoldering fires of Mount Doom by the Dark Lord Sauron and is the most iconic element of the films. Sauron was one of the Maiar similar to wizards like Gandalf, only he served as the top lieutenant of Morgoth, the greatest evil that ever befell Middle Earth. Morgoth, who was once known as Melkor, was one of the 14 Ainur, powerful beings who helped manage the creation of the world. But he disrupted the music of Eru Iluvatar and created terrible evils. Sauron's service to Morgoth gave him tremendous power through knowledge of the black arts. Following Morgoth's banishment, Sauron hid from the other Valar to begin plotting his own conquest of Middle Earth.
When he resurfaced, Sauron claimed to be a fair and wise teacher who offered his knowledge and skill to men, dwarves and elves to teach them how to create rings of power. After nine rings were created for men, seven for dwarves and three for the elves, Sauron secretly created a master ring that would control all of the others. His plans worked, but for the elves, who sensed his treachery and took their rings off before he could enslave them to his will.
A confederation of men and elves led by Isildur and Elrond, defeated Sauron after the one ring was cut from his finger. "The Lord of the Rings" begins several millennia later, when Sauron had regained his strength and began seeking the ring that Bilbo found and passed along to Frodo. "The Lord of the Rings" follows the ring of power and the events described are called the War of the Ring. Frodo is entrusted to destroy the ring and sets out with a fellowship of companions to guide and protect him in his journey. In the end, the ring's destruction brings the story to its conclusion. This unique coin features the ring of power along with the Black Speech of Mordor which reads, "One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them, one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them." Get the one coin to rule them all and add it to your precious collection!

Even as a fan of the genre, I was somewhat reluctant to purchase this coin ...But the appeal of such a low mintage, and the fact that there are other, more die-hard, fans out there that will (in time) pay through the nose for this eventually, made it irresistible to get! The only reason it lacks 5 star status for me, is that I believe they could have done something with the back-drop of the ring itself. It's too plain for me. I would have either had a vast landscape depicting something like the Lonely Mountain, The Shire, or even the map of Middle Earth. Anything but blank nothingness. Don't get me wrong ....I LOVE the coin! It is still ...Precious to me.
